  • [New] The Scottish Government will allocate at least £1.8 billion over the next five years to support the accelerated deployment of heat and energy efficiency measures in homes and buildings. UK Government
  • [New] UK business could apply for an energy efficiency assessment through one of the participating projects and apply for funding to install energy efficiency measures anywhere in the UK. UK Government
  • [New] Though the specific technologies installed differ between buildings, given the diversity of the UK building stock, we maintain that most buildings will require a combination of energy efficiency improvements, a low-carbon source of heat and smart and flexible use of energy. UK Government
  • [New] The construction and building sector is currently failing to upgrade building stock, while it has already been acknowledged that energy efficiency measures will not be enough to meet net zero targets. Institution of Civil Engineers
  • [New] Regardless of where China supports renewable energy around the world, intermittent power sources such as solar and wind will require lithium for power storage. The Dialogue
  • [New] Just one-in-six homeowners plan to improve the energy efficiency of their home in the next five years. Energy Live News
  • [New] A large majority of buildings should achieve a good level of energy efficiency by 2030, and all homes should meet at least equivalent to an EPC band C standard by 2033. UKERC
  • [New] Scottish Government intends to consult on the regulatory approach for heating non-domestic in 2022 and introduce regulations by 2025 to require owners to reduce demand for heat through energy efficiency improvements where feasible, and install a zero emissions heating supply.

  • [New] Rather than build new power plants at high cost, Texas could avert future blackouts at a lower price by instead improving the energy efficiency of its homes and using technologies to shift electricity use away from times of peak demand. ACEEE
  • [New] ADB now plans for US$ 66 billion in financing for climate mitigation financing through 2030, including for new energy storage, energy efficiency and low-carbon transportation investments. CNA
  • [New] NLC policy supports creating a national portfolio standard that increases the use of carbon-neutral energy and promotes energy efficiency, with the goal of 50% carbon-neutral energy by 2030 and 100% by 2050. National League of Cities
  • Research from SCE last year showed the need for $250 billion in clean energy, energy storage and grid investments through 2045. Canary Media
  • US cement manufacturers have invested billions of dollars in technologies in increasing energy efficiency and reducing carbon emissions, but energy efficiency alone will not be enough to meet long-term reduction goals. Electrek
  • The wind power and energy storage will see decline in its costs, making it the most competitive clean energy in the world.
  • Around 16 million new jobs could be created in clean energy, energy efficiency, engineering, manufacturing and construction industries in the Asia-Pacific region, more than compensating for the estimated loss of five million jobs by downscaling industries. UN News
  • Demand for battery metals to energy the inexperienced transition is on the up, with Wooden Mackenzie projecting international demand for power storage will rise to 1 TWh by 2030. iEmpresarial
  • Europe will see unprecedented demand growth for energy storage over the next nine years, with the world's leading EV market accounting for 100 GWh of demand.
  • Demand for battery metals to power the green transition is on the up, with Wood Mackenzie projecting global demand for energy storage will rise to 1 TWh by 2030.
  • Europe's energy woes illustrate the potential risks of moving too quickly to mandate renewable power, before taking essential steps to revamp U.S. electric grids, boost energy storage and build more solar arrays and wind farms. National Review
  • A more stable economy with provisions for renewable energy and energy efficiency development could deliver crucial advances in clean energy for Indonesia.
  • Measures to reduce GHG emissions in Indonesia's cities could add 2.3 million jobs in 2030, mostly in energy efficiency (retrofits and new construction) and rooftop solar installation in the buildings sector.
